Art evokes the mystery without which the world would not exist -- René Magritte
The Chicago metropolitan area is home to a wide variety of cultural institutions. A visit can often provide inspiration as well as information, and should not be overlooked as a potential source for research. Major examples include:
At Northwestern, opportunities for artistic engagement exist beyond the museum setting. The Elizabeth & Todd Warnock Lecture Series brings world-renowned artists, art historians, and scholars of the visual experience to Northwestern for a lecture once per quarter during the academic year. Students also have an opportunity to attend a seminar with the speaker the following day. For a schedule and more information, please check the Department of Art History or the artscircle websites.
Sponsored by the English Department, The Medieval Colloquium is an interdisciplinary lecture series that often includes discussions relevant to the art and artistic environment of the medieval period.
